The tiny baby in the photo below is one day old and HIV/AIDS free. He is held by his mother (who is HIV positive), and to their left is Clarisse-a Birth Assistant. To their right is the mother's mother. Entire families come for births (or for that matter, any ailment) and camp out at the hospital, making family circles around cooking fires that dot the campus.

The baby in red is a neighbor of mine. He is very curious and often in the care of his (not much) older sister.

Mon Velo! (my bike!)
